Students will be able to donate money from now until February 28th, the day of our event! Students who donate will receive prizes, based on how much they donate.

4K Pre-Registration

Pre-registration for Four Year Old Kindergarten will begin on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 and end on March 20, 2020. To be considered, children must turn four years old on or before September 1, 2020. Pre-registration does not guarantee enrollment in a Greenville County 4K program. Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center. Children do not have to live in the school attendance area to pre-register at that location. 4K screenings will be held for pre-registered children April 1-3, 2020. Visit the Greenville County 4K information website for more information. Forms should be hand delivered to the school during office hours, 7:30 to 4:00 each school day. Parents need to provide the completed forms, an immunization record, birth certificate and two proofs of residence (utility bills, lease, or mortgage statements are acceptable).

School Visitor & Volunteer Guidelines

At East North Street Academy, we are excited to have volunteers working with our students and staff! There are a few things to remember if you would like to come and volunteer. Each adult who wants to visit the school (beyond the office) must have a valid ID that will be scanned on each visit to the school. This could be a valid Drivers License or State Issued ID. This strictly enforced district policy is to ensure the safety of everyone in our building and we appreciate your willingness to comply. 

Interested in chaperoning field trips or volunteering in your child's classroom? In an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff, Greenville County Schools has implemented additional security checks for school volunteers. All volunteers must submit an online application to the district and receive clearance before volunteering at any school/center or chaperoning any school field trip. Access School Visitor and Volunteer Guidelines if you  would like more information. It is important to remember that the approval process may take up to 2 weeks, so please plan ahead. This process must be repeated each school year. 


ENSA's Little Free Library

Looking for a book to read? Check out our small wooden book box that is located on the right side of the road by the ENSA school sign. Anyone may take a book or donate a book to share. The more the merrier! You don't need to return the exact book you borrowed, however, in order to keep the library full of good choices, please add a book or two to share. Happy Reading! 


Donors Choose Projects

Our teachers often have Donor Choose Grants that have been written to get supplies, instructional materials, equipment, etc. for their classrooms.
